I have done a few things this week, 2 swap squares and worked on my Daisy Afghan. I also did the border for my Mystery CAL last week but I haven’t started this weeks clue yet. I was going to start on it last night but I felt really sick so I stayed on the couch all evening and went to bed early. Turns out I ate moldy bread for lunch ._.
I’m going to be doing a private swap of 2 12 inch squares a month with another swapper on swap-bot. We both are in the public swaps for squares but find that there is very little interest in yarn craft swaps so we’re doing our own 🙂 I’m also doing a swap with Jessica but I’ve already shown her square in another post 🙂
I’m loving my Daisy afghan so far, it’s been fun to work on. I’m hoping it’ll only take me another week or 2 but I’m not setting an end goal for myself or I may not finish it. I’m also really looking forward to seeing how this Mystery CAL border turns out!! This weeks clue looks fantastic and I can’t wait to start it tonight.
I’m finally getting around to posting another one of these lol. I’ve been sick off an on for the last few weeks and right now I’m currently taking antibiotics for a bladder/kidney infection so I feel like utter crap right now. I’ve managed to get caught up on the Mystery CAL that’s going on and I’m currently just waiting for the border clue that’s to come out next week. They gave us 2 weeks for this current clue so that’s how I was able to get caught up. It was joining all the squares together with a braided join and it was slightly difficult. I had to rip out a lot of my borders because I kept making mistakes but in the end I think it looks nice.
I’m definitely going to run out of yarn but that’s ok, I’ll sub in one of the colours I have more of and it’ll be ok. I don’t plan on submitting a photo for the contest anyways so it’ll be fine. I’m in a few more swaps and I’ve done 2 squares so far, I still ned to make 1 more square and that’s for the April swap. I’m trying to get ahead so I don’t get overwhelmed and fall behind. I also have to make 2 cards for my April swap.
I’m really disappointed in my 8 inch square swap partner, I sent her really nice squares (you saw them in my old post) and she hasn’t logged into the site since February 18 and both me and the swap coordinator have tried contacting her and she’s not responded at all. I spent so much time on those squares for her and I thought they were wonderful 🙁 It just makes me upset that I could have gotten a different partner who would have appreciated them!
In other news I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator during their Sale-a-Bration event so I could get free stamp sets and extra products for less money. I love their products and I really enjoy all the classes I’ve been taking that uses their stuff. I don’t plan on making my minimums at all (you have to make $400 in 3 months to stay active) so once I drop I’ll go back to ordering from my demonstrator I go to classes with now. I do plan on ordering a bunch of things that I need for my crafting supplies but I won’t be going over board like I did with everything else I’ve ever signed up with. I don’t plan on selling, doing classes, or anything like that. Even though I’d probably be good at teaching classes I just don’t have the time or space for it. If people want to order from me until my time is up that’s fine too.
